These programs are designed to integrate with standard shell tools,
extending them to operate on the Debian packaging system.
dgrep  - Search all files in specified packages for a regex
dglob  - Generate a list of package names which match a pattern
These are also included, because they are useful and don't justify
their own packages:
debget             - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database
dpigs              - Show which installed packages occupy the most space
debman             - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without
debmany            - Select manpages of installed or uninstalled packages
checkrestart       - Help to find and restart processes which are using old
versions of upgraded files (such as libraries)
popbugs            - Display a customized release-critical bug list based
on packages you use (using popularity-contest data)
which-pkg-broke    - find which package might have broken another
check-enhancements - find packages which enhance installed packages
